My video, below of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino’s funny response to a Daily Beast survey that lists Boston as the drunkest city in the nation. Boston Herald’s Raakhee Mirchandani asks the questions and the mayor, suffering from a December cold, answers as only he can. See Raakhees’ story in the Boston Herald.
I came upon this in South Boston’s seaport district on D St. The MBTA says that this driver ran a red light and was then struck by the Silver line bus. See my photos below.
This was a sad news event to cover for sure as word of the death of firefighter James Rice started to spread to working firefighters at 5 Hancock street. See my photos below.
Here is my photo of Last week’s full moon and a photo, snapped today, of a Back Bay construction team readying for the day ahead. How DO they enter that outhouse?
As Occupy Boston took it’s show on the road to a Copley Square event, Boston police, including the top department brass lead by Commissioner Ed Davis, followed. Yesterday’s 1pm rally included an aluminum foil replica of the now infamous kitchen sink that was confiscated by police Thursday night from the Dewey Square encampment. It also included speeches, a band and an unsuspecting newly married couple who meandered out of Trinity Church and into a large Occupy Boston march. The just married couple, Phillip Marshall and Elise Reynolds, did not mind one bit as they are both Occupy Boston supporters. See my photos below. See Herald story here.
